twenty. weeks. old.
my baby can read. just kidding, but she loves to look at books. this one just happens to be her favorite. it's a soft bath book. simple bright colored pictures that just love to be chewed on. she seriously loves it!
seems to me like my little bird has either stopped teething (with no new tooth poking through) or she has just learned to deal with the pain. she's still drooling up a storm but is back to her happy, not-so-crabby self. she's a pro at sitting up now. she still falls over at times, especially when she gets really excited but those little back muscles are getting strong. she just loves playing in her crib. she played in there for an hour the other day. so awesome. i can usually put her in there with a few toys and her little book and take a quick shower. i just love this little birdie so much!
twenty one. weeks. old.
my baby is so LOUD. she has learned how to shriek like a baby pterodactyl and since discovering this new found talent, she does it non-stop. i will try to get a *very short* video of it for you guys. it's pretty funny.
we are finally starting to be on a pretty regular schedule. the birdie has been going down for bed time around 9-9:30pm and sleeping through the night with only a few 'in bed/roll over nursing sessions' and is waking around 8am with about 3 good naps per day. it's making life a lot easier and more pleasant. i am a little stumped on bath time though. we recently switched her from the puj tub, to something a bit more her size... a little bath tub set up. she has always loved her bath time but ever since we got this new tub, she loathes it and screams and cries the whole time. it's so sad. any ideas what this is all about? i'm thinking of getting a bath seat instead of a tub. maybe she would like that better or maybe just a better tub. any thoughts or suggestions on the subject?
other than that we've got no complaints. we love this tiny lady. she's a doll and gets lovelier every day.
